Heading out into the Turkish countryside!

Leaving Istanbul now and heading east with the bus towards Ankara, the country’s capital in the western Anatolia region. Most fellow travellers are sleeping but I can never seem to sleep while travelling. What if I were to miss something interesting!

So much construction in this country!Turkey_03344.jpgTwo hours out of Istanbul. Beautiful low mountains. Gorgeous scenery.Turkey_03345.jpgFour and a half hours out from Istanbul.Turkey_03347.jpg

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
